SMOOSH Art and Craft Program
Anyone coming into the Centre lately would have noticed the excellent artworks behind the counter.
All were done at SMOOSH (Safe Multicultural Out Of School Hours) by the children attending.
The SMOOSH art and craft program is varied, with some works organised with instruction by the staff, and many done in their free time.
One of the kids’ favourite activities is ‘Robot Building’, using various recycled materials including cardboard, plastic, styrofoam, or any safe usable materials.
The style and creativity of each work is unique, in an environment where creativity is welcomed and encouraged.
Please come in to see the works when you can.
We try to renew the display every few months.
